The Nuggets will be without Carmelo Anthony for the season opener and I was thinking how
nice unfortunate it would be for Utah to lose their best player too. Well, now the Jazz will be without Deron Williams who will miss at least two weeks with a sprained ankle he suffered against the Bulls on Saturday. If the Nuggets are going to win a game in Utah this is their chance. The Nuggets have a couple of players who can provide at least a reasonable facsimile of what they are missing with Melo on the sidelines, but Utah does not have anyone who can fill Williams' shoes.
